The MDOT SHA contractor has raised the road and paved within two inches of the finished grade from 8th Street heading north to the entrance of Walton Beach Nature Preserve. The concrete work (curb, gutter and sidewalk) has been installed in this area.
The remaining work, which is substantial, will be a new bridge and connecting it to the roadway. The test piles for the bridge have been installed and are awaiting approval. Steel sheeting has been driven for removal and installation of the bridge. The crane has been on site and work is expected to begin to remove the old structure in the next few weeks.
